Artini 2016

November 18, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Remember Artini? Thanks to the new Urban Gateways Associate Board, this fabulously fun event is making a re-entrance…and we would love to see our entire arts advocate community show up for the festivities! This pre-holiday cocktail party includes appetizers, drinks (“Artini” cocktails, beer, and wine), and live entertainment by Urban Gateways artists – all at Parliament, one of Chicago’s swankiest nightclubs! Join us on Friday, November 18 to celebrate the role of arts education in building a strong and vibrant Chicago, and to have a grand time while you’re at it. All proceeds benefit Urban Gateways arts education programs in Chicago schools and community venues.

Online ticketing is no longer available, but you can purchase $65 tickets (cash, credit, or check all accepted) at the door!
